    I do not agree.
    Over the years I have hired a lot of employees.
    I paid them what they were worth.......period.
    I've had employees doing the same job as the person beside them but paid them twice what the other employee was getting.
    These people were paid twice because they were providing me with exemplary work.
    They provided an excellent example to other employees. The highly paid employees NEVER told anyone about how much they were making.
    Smart employers know how to treat their best employees.
    THAT's how people get rich in business.

    That's about as succinctly put as I've ever seen.

    How? Did someone point a gun at you and force you to buy an iPhone?

    Mr Canadian, you need to learn a bit more about the greatest country on earth before you speak out. We don’t ELECT judges. They are appointed.

    Here is a link I suggest you read very soon, it will keep you from embarrassing yourself anymore.

    Hogwash. Look at the large picture and not your small one.

    Buy cheap, sell dear is what those who buy and sell go by. If you could get cheaper labor, you would use it. If you could sell your product for more, you would.

    A company that finds a product it can do that with does not pass down it's windfall to employees not does it give the buyer a break. That is were advantage is taken by the rich.

    Regards

    Establishment government political office holders protect their own interests. Look at problems anti-establishment President Trump is having with establishment politicians in his own party. They wanted low energy Jeb who they could control. Instead they got a sonofabitch that fights for the American people!

    There are certain goods and services that people can't live without (an iPhone isn't one of them). The corporations and financial industry currently have people over a barrel in the way they provide them.

    The right wing has nothing but repeal when it is about increasing costs for the rich.
